"Nine Lives" as written by Joel Cadbury, Jamie Mcdonald and Brett Shaw....
You ask about forgiveness
I've defined the word yet
A chance to set your back straight
A chance to find some feeling
You say you will come home soon
Won't see you most the weekday
I miss you at the best of times
You help me walk that fine line

Sometimes you pale on reflection
This walking figure might have 9 lives
Sometimes you pale with desire
I don't know whether you've used all your lives

We talk about forgiveness
I'm yet to find the meaning
I miss you at the best times
You help me walk that fine line

    General CommentFeatured on The OC, S01E25, "The Shower" aired 4/21/04. I'm not sure about the second line of the first verse, so I'd love to hear your suggestions.

    General CommentYeah i heard this song on the OC, and i loved it. I think its about someone who you lost, and you want back, and wants you back, but you know its going to be hard, and your not sure weather giving them another chance is a good idea. Example: "And I don't know whether You've used all your lives"

    awesome song
